Published October 5, 2011


NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the Dunphy Complex Fire on Oct. 3, 2011 at 20:50 UTC (4:50 p.m. EDT) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument onboard captured this image of smoke. The fires are indicated in red. The Dunphy Complex fire is burning North of Carlin, Nevada and consists of three wildfires sparked by a dry lightning storm on Friday, September 30, 2011. The complex consists of the Indian Creek, Chukar, and Izzenhood Fires, according to Inciweb. Inciweb is the "Incident Information System" website that reports wildfire conditions throughout the country. Inciweb noted that the area is closed to hunting and recreational traffic. In addition to the fires, the residents of the area are also facing rain and snow. According to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Elko, Nevada, a Winter Storm Warning is in effect for today for elevations above 7,000 feet. The NWS forecasts widespread rainfall over the Great Basin while heavy wet snow is expected above 7,000 feet . NASA image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team.
